(AP) As they put it, they've been "turned on by Jesus." And things seem different. Most of them are hippies. Others are "straight" kids.

"I think we who have been missionized, so to speak, have a definite role in bringing back the gospel to the very lands from which the missionaries came, said Rev. Albert Bal- deo. Mr. Baldeo. 40. resigned from his position as1 minister of Trinidad's largest Presbyterian Church to come to Canada. Many Canadian churchmen didn't understand lie de- cided to come but Mr. Baldeo said he hopes to bridge the gap between black and white. He believes the church is "the greatest vehicle of reconcilia- tion." "For more than 100 years we have been listening to the white man he said. "I think it is time the white man listen- ed to the gospel message from the black man. I "I feel that perhaps we of the so-called under-developed coun- tries can be developed in the spiritual realm and in giving to the Western world a greater perspective and richer values in We." Mr. Baldeo is no stranger to Canada. He was educated at Mount Allison University in New Brunswick and St. Ste- phen's College in Edmonton. ALMS AT RACE RELATIONS hi Toronto, he will be in- volved in a proposed West In- dian Centre. The centre, to be set up by the United Church of Canada, will cater to the cul- tural needs of the West Indian United States, feels that proposed program will "go a long way towards improving relations between blacks and whites in the community." "While I have been told by several persons that Trinidad needs me now, there is also an urgent need for men to preach the gospel in various other parts of the he said. "The time has come when Trinidad must tiiink of exportr ing not only carypso, steel bands, rum or oil." Mr. Baldeo believes his 'mission of love" will help to restore Trinidad's image abroad. AIORE HERE He claims he has seen more violence in places like Canada and the United States than in Trinidad. "And when I talk of violence I'm not necessarily talking about bloodshed. In some of the so-called civilized countries you'll find some of the most wicked forms of repressive vi- olence." Mr. Baldeo said the church in Trinidad has not escaped the anger of the black power move- ment for "not playing its full role in bringing about social change." Referring to the black power eruptions in Trinidad, Mr. Bal- deo believes "the people in the country are seeking some new form of government." "Tlie country has not had any type of constructive oppo- sition and tins naturally had been leading to a type of dic- tatorship." CENTRAL CHURCH OF CHRIST 415 lllh St. S. Mrs. Penny Dodd, Oroanist J.
